It's only 6 days old. Sounds like RR's retention is horrible.

Pathetic is an understatement. As I just told Andy I get almost 5
months from ABF. Many things I get take longer than 36 hours to get
all the .pars and .rars. 36 hours would make me as unhappy as being
stuck with google. (couldn't resist)

Sounds like a cool feature. I don't know if Agent has that, but with
the retention I have it's not an issue

Nope, it's about 3 days retention on Tampa Bay's server for binaries.
